i fell in love with this striped cutout dress after seeing it on stephanie sterjovski's instagram feed the other weekend. i think it is so cute and fun and summery and i am crossing my fingers that i find it at my local forever 21 this weekend to wear to a going away party saturday night.
anybody else wish they knew how to break dance?
i am loving the new politics "harlem" song oh so much this summer. it's a little bit punk and a lot of fun! plus it makes me want to dance or take a road trip with my head out the window hair blowing in the wind. pure fun and excellence!
am i the only one who finds yoga intimidating?
my friend b has really inspired me to finally give this yoga thing a try (also every time i get a massage they remind me how tight i am and that i need to incorporate some yoga into my routine). living social also inspired me with this incredible deal for a month unlimited for only $30 at yogaworks (actually only $20 using the promo code FREEDOM at checkout)!
and so, i have my month unlimited, my inspiration and my fingers and toes crossed that this yoga thing works for me. i am nervous as a beginner and also nervous that i will look like a fool in front of everyone, but i am going to give it my all.
any tips for this novice?

now that it is officially summer, i decided it was a good idea to lighten up our usual "casserole monday" with some absolutely delicious skinny lettuce wraps!
last night i took a chance and tried out this recipe from makeshift margaritas and let me just say the results were outstanding and a great success! best part, they were so incredible easy to make!
*1 lb. ground turkey or ground chicken
*2 tablespoons low-fat peanut butter (i used regular)
*3 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
*2 tablespoons low sodium teriyaki sauce (i used trader joe's soyaki)
*1 can water chestnuts, drained
*1/2 chopped onion (i used the entire container of trader joe's onions, garlic & shallots pre-cut)
*1 head of lettuce washed & divided into large pieces for wrapping
*i added some freshly chopped mushrooms
1. Brown ground meat until fully cooked. Drain any fat.
2. Add peanut butter, soy sauce, teriyaki, onions,*mushrooms* and water chestnuts. Mix until combined. Allow to simmer for about 5 minutes (i let it simmer for about 10-12 minutes).
3. Spoon meat into lettuce and wrap.
